Virtual NaTIVITY Pageant!  

This year our Nativity Pageant is going virtual and intergenerational! Families with children can submit short scenes they will film from the creativity of their own homes by December 8th. Once the videos have been submitted, they will be edited together with music, effects, and Christmas flair to create a uniquely SMCC worship experience you won't want to miss.

  • SIGN UP FOR ONLINE ADVENT WORKSHOP! 

    The Advent Workshop centers around preparing your home and heart for Christ's birth at Christmas by creating treasured keepsakes and creating space for family traditions. This year we will have a virtual workshop where families will pick up materials at the church to do the activities. We will communicate week by week instructions of ideas for crafts, helping others, drama. Here's a tutorial on how to make an advent wreath centerpiece: these all will help make for a wonderful advent season at home.


    Make sure you have all your supplies ready before the first week of Advent, November 29th! But you can join in anytime.
